"Principal voice? Some people think principals have all of the power and too loud of a voice, when the reality is often much different than that. Principals are typically caught between central office initiatives and teacher, parent and student needs. Too often they feel the need to be reactive instead of proactive. In his new book Principal Voice, Russ Quaglia offers important insights based in research and practical tips on how principals can find their own voice, foster the voices of others and be more proactive."-- Peter DeWitt, Author and Consultant

I dare any principal to try and read this book only one time!"-- Brad Gustafson, Elementary Principal and Author of Renegade Leadership

Auchter, Director of Professional Development
"Perhaps the greatest challenge for an educational practitioner is to provide advice-in writing-to other practitioners. Such collegial advice must pass the `Goldilocks Principle' of being neither too theoretical nor too simplistic. Happily, Dr. Russ Quaglia has come up with a `just right,' genuinely insightful contribution to instructional leadership. Although research-based, his suggestions as to why school principals should employ his Voice Model to better utilize her or his voice in a way that builds relationships, trust, and momentum within the school at the same time involving students, teachers, parents, and community mem-bers is persuasively slathered in practicality. A terrific, must read!"-- Dr. Raymond L. Smith, Author of Evaluating Instructional Leadership
"Principal Voice is one of the most important resources for educational leaders in a disrupted world. It's concise, direct, and full of actionable ideas for all leaders to implement immediately. If you are committed to influencing change, then Principal Voice is the roadmap to making a tremendous difference in the lives of students."
-- Simon T. Bailey, Author of Releasing Leadership Brilliance
"With a perfect blend of wit and wisdom, Russ Quaglia expands upon his compelling research related to student and teacher voice to reveal the value and importance of principal voice in leading and supporting growth schoolwide. Alternately encouraging and challenging, Quaglia beseeches principals to listen carefully to student and teacher voice in finding and leveraging their own voice to influence policy and practice. Principal Voice is a must read for principals and anyone who is involved with educating our nation's children-it provides a blueprint for utilizing 'voice' in leading through collaboration to achieve better results for students."-- Gail Connelly, Executive Director
